‘Sherlock’ season 4: Steven Moffat benefits huge from show’s past, ‘Doctor Who’

Sherlock season 3This Christmas, Steven Moffat could very well decorate a Christmas tree made entirely of money … at least based on some of the news that we have heard about right now.

Per the Mirror, the prolific writer / executive producer behind “Doctor Who” and “Sherlock” has seen some of his royalties for the shows quadruple over the past twelve months. What is this a byproduct of? More than anything else, it merely just shows how successful that these shows have become since debuting. This number may be slightly skewed, given that Moffat did not have a new “Sherlock” season in 2013, whereas one aired this year. Still, he’s got to be a happy man!

Speaking per the publication about both himself and the makers of the show in Hartswood Films, Moffat admitted that he actually is for the most part in the dark:

“I did not know how much Hartswood made. I don’t even know what I’m earning … But the show is selling well and we will keep doing it. We are pleased with the success of Sherlock and Doctor Who this year.”

We very much expect 2014 to be just as crazy for Moffat as the one before, given that he has a “Doctor Who” season coming up. Not only that, but “Sherlock” season 4 is going to begin production with a Christmas Special. That is going to film starting in January. As for the path beyond this, that is something we are still waiting to find out.

For now, though, enjoy the “Doctor Who” Christmas Special Thursday!
